To the Benoit Family: This week, you have experienced the loss of a beautiful and kind person. I will remember her for her smile, she was most caring, kind and generous. Through life, she has had some heartaches, particularly when her son was killed in the mine. She was a woman of great faith and although she may have questioned "Why?", she accepted God's will........Now the time has come for her reward. God has received her in his care and there will be no more turmoil in her life. She will still remain very close to her family from heaven. A mother's love never goes away! To all of you I offer you my deepest sympathies. Theresa has left her mark with me. She was a precious lady with a contageous smile. Keep your courage! Time will heal, remember all the fond memories that you have of her. God Bless all of you!

Condolence From: Beth (Richard) Easson
Prayers and Warm Thoughts go out to the family with this loss, from the Richard clan of James and Bernice. Years ago Theresa and the Benoit clan was a fixture in Cape Auguet for us next door on the weekends and in the summer, and one that I will always have fond memories of growing up. Theresa has left a wonderful legacy with the children that she has raised. Micheal, we haven't seen each other in many years, but when I read your Mother's obituary in the paper this morning there was no way I could not send my prayers and thoughts to you. Take care, your Mom can rest now and be at peace. You are in my thoughts my friend.. Take care Beth(Richard)Easson
